Junior, Selena Srirattanapirom , was selected as this year’s recipient of the “Student Peace Award of Frederick County,” representing  Tuscarora High School. The award was presented on the morning of Friday, May 4th by  Mr. Carpenter and Ms. Norouzi.

 

Selena states:  “Meditation gave me the inspiration to spread loving kindness and peace, which enabled me to undertake this service and then receive the Student Peace Award. As a high school student, I feel very proud and accomplished that I could become part of a society that would spread peace throughout the world.”

 

Each year, high schools in Frederick County are invited to choose one of their students to receive the “Student Peace Award of Frederick County.”  The purpose of the award is to honor students who are helping to make our world a better place by promoting the values of peacemaking, conflict resolution, and respect for all people. This year all 11 public high schools and 2 private high schools in Frederick County selected a student to receive the award.

 

The award comes with a $200 check, and a $100 contribution to the charity of the student’s choice.  Selena has chosen The Meditation Center of D.C. as her charity.

 

Congratulations to Selena!
